Polis Calls on Congress to End Marijuana Prohibition

Speaking alongside industry advocates, U.S. Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) called Wednesday for Congress to end the prohibition on marijuana, stressing the need to reduce drug violence while hailing the medical cannabis market's capacity for growing the economy. "Ending the failed policy of prohibition with regard to marijuana will strike a major blow against the criminal cartels that are terrorizing Americans and Mexicans on both sides of the border," Polis said at the National Press Club, in response to a question from Raw Story. "It's been estimated that the drug cartels drive about half of ...

Jared Polis has ideas for closing federal budget gap

Although the so-called Gang of Six's proposalfor averting debt-ceiling catastrophe is getting the lion's share of attention right now, Representative Jared Polis has floated some revenue-raising ideas of his own, which the media has largely winnowed down to this: Legalizing marijuana would help close the budget gap. But if that shortchanges some of his other notions, Polis's spokesman isn't complaining. "You can't really blame the media for focusing on a controversial issue when you raise a controversial issue," says Polis communications director Chris Fitzgerald. "If it brings attention to ...

Polis Statement on FRA Administrator Sarah Feinberg visit to Discuss Train Noise
Northern Colorado, June 17, 2016: Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) released the following statement after meeting with Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) Administrator Sarah Feinberg to discuss train horn noise.  Polis joined Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.), and community leaders in Fort Collins and Loveland to discuss the agency’s train horn rule and the need to establish quiet zones.  “Fort Collins, Loveland, and all of Northern Colorado are known as wonderful areas to reside and raise a family, but the train horns are a nuisance - nearly everyone agrees.  I'm relieved that the Federal Railroad Administration is finally willing to hear directly from the community about the unbearable noise.  While listening is a necessary first step, I commit to fighting until the Federal Railroad Administration takes action and removes unreasonable barriers to Quiet Zones,” Rep. Polis said. For more information on Rep. Polis’s efforts to resolve
Polis, Hinojosa, Moore and 100+ Members of Congress urge President Obama to expand access to federal student services for DACA students
Washington, D.C., June 21, 2016:  Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.), Rep. Rubén Hinojosa (D-Texas), and Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.), along with 110 other members of Congress sent a letter to the Obama Administration urging them to expand access to Federal TRIO Programs (TRIO) for students who are eligible for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.  Nationwide, there are over 728,000 DACA residents.  Students who participate in TRIO are from low-income families and the first in their families to attend college.  Beginning in middle school and continuing through college, the programs provide critical student support services through mentoring, academic and financial counseling, and tutoring.  In 2010, the U.S. Dept. of Education finalized a rule that only U.S. citizens can participate in TRIO even though, in several states, DACA and other undocumented students are eligible for in-state tuition.  The regulation is not required by law, meaning the
Statement from Rep. Jared Polis about the U.S. v Texas decision
Rep. Jared Polis (CO-02) released the following statement today regarding the Supreme Court’s split decision in U.S. v. Texas regarding the implementation of the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) program and the expansion of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA+) program: “While the Supreme Court’s split decision in U.S. v. Texas is disappointing due to the fact that it will further delay the ability of millions of hard-working immigrants - who are parents of U.S. citizen children - from being able to work legally, it does not create a national precedent,” said Rep. Polis.  “Therefore, I strongly encourage the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security to pursue the potential implementation of these critical programs in states that were not parties to the litigation.  The Governor of Texas should not have the power to dictate immigration policy in Colorado.” “The decision also
Polis Statement on Mass Shooting in Orlando
Washington, D.C., June 13, 2016:  Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) released the following statement regarding the mass shootings at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida. “The Orlando shooting was a direct attack on equality, diversity, and freedom; it was an act of terror against all Americans,” Rep. Polis said. “Most tragically it snuffed out dozens of vibrant lives too soon, and darkened countless others. My heartfelt sympathy is with the victims as well as their families, friends, and the city of Orlando.” “My thoughts also remain with the entire LGBT community. Our community today has been the target of hate and terror, and it is tragic that members of the community who want to give blood to help their friends are unjustifiably prevented from doing so despite the need.” “While we mourn those lost, we must continue to be resilient. We, as a community, know that love will always prevail over hate.” Polis is a co-chair of the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus and th
